Wow..can you believe it has been another week again?! Welcome, if you are here for the first time. Hope you will stay and look around for a bit! I was so excited when I heard that Week 2 for Project Run and Play was Sportswear. The first thing that came to my mind was a modern, yet vintage golfer. Funny how my brain works sometimes, but I ran with it, and this is what I came up with:
My husband was the genius behind the name of the outfit this week. Don’t you love it?
My biggest goal this week was to make the clothes comfortable, interchangeable, and easy to move in.
When I was a little girl, I wore knickers constantly. I love them because you can wear them in the spring and summer with no socks or in the winter and fall with socks and they work! The knickers were made from a lightweight cotton (we do live in Las Vegas, so I wanted to make sure my daughter could wear them year round!). I added the button detailing on front to give it more of a vintage feel and they ended up being one of my favorite details! I also adore the button closures at the knee.
Next up is the shirt. It was made with a lightweight knit, so I doubled it so it wasn’t transparent. It is a very simple shirt, but by far my favorite detail is the pleating detail I put on the shoulder. I love that she can wear this plain as well and show that off!
Last we have a sweet little vest. I knew I wanted to pleat the bottom and by lining it in a contrasting fabric, you can catch little glimpses as she moves..love that! This was made from a t shirt pattern. I left off the sleeves and then cut the front right down the middle and then made the new shape!
Lastly I made some sweet hair accessories and a belt that coordinated and brought everything together. These belts are so fun to make. You can find my tutorial for them HERE.
They are so great to add to any outfit for a pop of color.
And here are a few outtakes from the shoot. My daughter had such a great time swinging that vintage wooden club around.
Not a bad swing form for a 3 year old, right?! (Maybe I’ll get to make more golfing outfits in the future…):)
So there you have it..a bit of what went into this week. I’d LOVE your vote over at Project Run and Play.
You can vote through Sunday evening!
And of course, here is the paper doll outfit this week:
Thanks for stopping by.
